The plan was to have the state deliver
,s opening statement In the case today.
but not knowing the exact condition of
Dr. G. T. Twyman, one of the state's wit
nesses who waa stricken with acute ap
pendicitis yesterday, the prosecution re
fused to make the address. Ia the event
that Dr. Twyman could not be used aa a
witness, said Mr. Conkllng, certain changes
would have to be made in the statement.
Ha wanted to know exactly what witnesses
he could depend upon, he said, before he
went. Into trial.
When tt was suggested that the Jury,
which was chosen yesterday, be sworn,
Mr. Conkling objected. This led many to
believe that he might yet ask to have the
Jury discharged. In the event of the Jury
being sworn, nothing could stop the pro
gress of the trial. Tonight, however, Mr.
Conkllng set aside ail doubt aa to his In- I
tention to begin the trial.
"Dr. Twn.'i condition la very good,
Ipdeed," he said. "He may be able to
testify. I ahail proceed with, the trial even
though halt of the state's witnesses be

Wltaeaeee far State.
Frank P. Walsh, chief counsel for Dr.
Hyde, will insist upon the witnesses for
the state testifying In order and he will
not present a witness for the defense until
the last aian haa taken the stand for the
prosecution.
Monday probably will be given over en
tirely to the making of the opening ad
dresses. The state's speaker will address
the Jury first. Mr. Walsfc. wll& fallow for

court building for the first time today.

Dr. A. M. Perdue, a local scientist, has

experts. It waa announced today.

Pending a more detailed statement of the
physician's Illness, the Jury la held with

man's death before Monday, the case would
go to trial immediately. If, however, bia
Illness la not fatal, but lingering, the stale
may aek that the Jury be dismissed and
the case continued indefinitely. Such a
course will be opposed by the attorneys
for Dr. Hyde, as they are desirous of their
client being-given an Immediate trial.
An operation was performed on Dr. Twy
man this morning. Dr. Jabes Jackson

This, according to physicians, is even mora
dangerous than appendicitis. Dr. Twyman

WASHINGTON. April 11 (Special Tele
gram to The Bee.) The convention of the
National Women's Suffrage association,
which ended today, an dthe national con
gress of Daughters of the American Revo
lution, which convenes Monday, have
brought more prominent women to this
c.ty than sny other event which baa trans
pired in the United plates. Today the na
tional capital would, if a census had been
taken, showed Itself the temporary abiding
p ace of a ia.-ga Traction of the well known
women o fthe land.
As the suffrag!?ta wound up their stormy
convention and clouds began to form, her
alding trouble In the ranks of the Daugh
ters of the American Revolution, whaa
their congress assemMca on Monday, de
velopments have come to- pass which show
the public at large that the women are
rapidly becoming adept In the game of
politics.
The spirit of pro preys has already caused
two sets of insurgents one in the Wom
en's Suffrage association and the other la
the Daughters of the American Revolution.
The Insurgents are formidable in each or
ganization. In the suffrage association
they defend the huwing of President Taft
and In the Daughters of the American
Revolution they are fosteting the movement
to oust Mrs. Matthew Scott, the president.
Fear and Trembling;.
Among the members of the cabinet and
congress there are many who fear that to
some Indirect way they must have been
drawn Into the suffrage controversy, and
tonight there were audible sighs of relief
marking the close of the convention.. Even
President Taft. whose presence gave rise
to the trouble, evidenced a feeling of secret

the hissing incident would have soma
political effect.
It waa feared and openly commented that
the wives and daughters of congressmen
and cabinet members might be drawn Into
the interesting suffrage fight, which would
In turn Involve the men. For a time it
waa actually feared that something might
grow out of tile Taft Incident which would
be construed Into a campaign matter and
might be an issue In some of tha state
campaigns next fail, especially In the west
ern states where suffrage prevaila.
Meet la the Mall.
With President Taft already the center
of a political storm, the new clouds which
have arisen from the hlsBing Incident added
to his troubles. It is said that when Presi
dent Taft met Mrs. Donald McLean, honor
ary president of the Daughters of Americas
Revolution, in the corridor of the Arlington
hotel after be had attended the convention.
Captain Archibald Butt, the military aide
of tha president, pushed forward and whis
pered to Mrs. McLean:
"Are you a suffragette?"
Mrs. McLean was both puzsled and sur
prised and she showed it In her manner
as she replied:
"Good gracious!"
The president shook hands with hr and
Captain Butt moved away, muttering
sorneth f which sounded like:
"Thunk God!"
The warfare which raged In the conven
tion of the suffragists was unexpected, so
far as the Taft incidtnt was concerned,
but It Is believed It will have a far-reaching
effect.
The anti-suffraglsts are led by Mrs.
Eiihu Root, wife of Senator Root of New
York, and will doubtless attempt to make
capital of the Incident.
The storm in the coming congress of th
Daughters of the American Revolution haj
already " been annoum.J, but of a dif
ferent character. However. suspicious
rumors have been heard within the last
twenty-four hours. Indicating that curia. a
delegates will attempt to have a resolu
tion adopted f-voring suffrage. If such,
a resolution ia forthcoming It will mean
a new eruption. The Daughters of the
American Revolution is conspicuous for
Its politics, but the political struggles have
been confined to the election of its own
officers.
After Mra. Satt.
The Insurgents within the body are de
termined to Imp. iii h Mrs. Scott, if possi
ble, because. U ey allege, she violated the
censtitution of li.a body in diucnarging
some of the clerical force In haaJ.fuartera
without consulting the executive commit
tee. Mrs. McLean, when asked today if the
const ess would be near-etui, said:
"We have aiways be-i given credit for
more nuine than we ever mode. I thins ma
ci ming t:-0!a-re.-s will be an important one.
So many vague rumors have been circu
lated that real'y ii-i.u no ground for
fuundaiiou.
"Mrs. Scoit, the pr'sdent general, axainst
who n.jionic of the so-ca:led Insurgents are
working. d;e not antkira:e any trouble.
I have heard nothing of an attempt to have
tne cor.Kie go on riCuid aa favoring auf
fratfe. Doubtless, howrv-r. a number of
the members pre-mi may favor uff.ae,
lor sorr.e of those f t a t:.ud tha iu f a ;a
iouvei.t'.oa this week are remaining over
for our i-ui.Kteaa it it week."
President Taft this afternoon sent a I. tter
to Mrs. Frances ij i res Poller, president
if the Nai ur.nl A ma 1 an Su.'fraa anaoi ia

"I regret the incident ahUll occurred
d'.ilin gmy ape , not for per-oiial reasons,
for I have no personal feel.ngs on the sub
ject at all, but because mil -h siKiiricance'
baa been attached t It. Ii may be u.ed
